Had a great time visiting Murano and Burano, the visit to the glass factory was very interesting but a little bit expensive in the shop, Burano was is a beautiful place to visit very colourful. Our guide was fantastic and gave the tour lots of information on Venice as well as Murano and Burano.

Murano was great - watching the glass-blowing process was fascinating. The shop though was terribly expensive :) Burano - IMO can be skipped. The weather was lovely that day and we did enjoy it, but there's nothing much to see per se. The guide was great and part of our fun was coz of her.

This is an excellent way to spend half a day. Our group size was small, about 12 of us. The private boat was very comfortable. Our guide, Gabrella, was very bubbly and enthusiastic whilst giving us lots of information during the boat ride to the islands. I would have liked abit longer on Murano to visit the Church of Santa Maria e San Donato in more detail. The time spent on Burano was about right.
